This started out as a joke and then I decided it wasn’t a joke.
There are perceptions about what/how/why something happens (usually from the DSC out to the sites) about topics that often end up needing clarification. I’m wondering if these are things that people are willing to post on a thread here and we can help get to the bottom of the issue. This happened a lot to me early in my time at 287. There was a large, and perhaps still looming, perception that I’m trying to make every student an online learner or every teacher and online teacher and it’s just not the case. I like to clear those kinds of things up when I can.
About 7 years ago when we launched our district Moodle site there was a perception that it would be going away right away and that something else would replace it. Now we have an internationally recognized district for how we use and collaborate with Moodle. It’s not going anywhere, no matter what other tools people use in their classrooms. It’s simply too valuable for more reasons than just individual courses.
So, that’s my example. I thought it might be nice just to have a place to post things you’re hearing and we can figure out who the people are who can help confirm, clarify or reject various issues.
